Mormon Problems: My Patriarchal Blessing says he’s not the guy for me, how do I end it?

Hi Angela,

My question for you is about dating in relation to my patriarchal blessing.  I know that we shouldn’t read too much into our blessings, but mine actually does state very clearly that I will marry a returned missionary.  I take this to be more counsel rather than prophesy, as I know in the end it’s my choice, but it’s pretty clear counsel I don’t wish to ignore.  

So this makes for some potentially awkward moments in dating.  What do I say to a guy that asks me out who’s not an RM?  I’m happy to go on one date, as there’s no harm in that, but at the same time I don’t want to lead him on much beyond that.  What do I say if he keeps asking for dates, or if a guy just shows some genuine interest, but I already know that it can’t lead anywhere because of this personal counsel?  I definitely don’t want him to feel inferior for not being an RM.

Thanks,

Following counsel.

  1. First of all, quite frankly, much in your PB will noy transpire as you think. Being a RM is not the mark of integrity necessarily. Holding a current Temple recommend is. As a HP and married for 43 years, don’t in any way restrict your dating experience to RM to any degree or duration. If it proves important as you prudently consider men while socializing, the Lord will LEAD YOU. Group dating helps you cross paths.
